3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear toffee amber, medium off-white head. Initial aroma made me think of toast with maple spread. Nice toast & toffee flavour, medium bodied, nicely hopped finish of medium bitterness. Tasty, and a nice take on the style (even if they don’t use Munich malt).

500ml bottle. Rich golden orange colour, sunset in a glass with a solid level dirty white head and strong caramel malt aromas that beckon and invite you in. Well balanced malty flavour that hits all parts of the mouth. Robust and moresish . A good effort.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, poured a dark copper with a large foamy light brown head. Sweet caramal malt aroma, a little oaky. A very sweet palate, the toasted malt exhibiting both caramal and nutty flavours. The hops increase in the finish, with a little bit of spice and bitterness. A pretty well put together Vienna Lager.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’ve had this beer a couple of times before, but never rated it. I’m sorry. This is me trying to be a better person.
I’ve always enjoyed that particular authentic marmitey Germanic yeast aroma that gives warm buttered toast and tangerine citrus. It’s intriguing and an aoma I would be quite happy to have as the last thing I ever smell.
The colour is a gorgeous amber that lets off a rocky, fluffy white head.
The fist flavours are al mandarin, tangerine and pink grapefruit and then soter tones of fresh bread and roasted hazelnuts. For all intents, this is quite a simple beer, but of a style that you don’t see terribly much of here in New Zealand. A thoroughly enjoyable drop made more enjoyable by its rarity.
